Over the last 10 years, Jenny has coached and mentored formally and informally in various roles at the centre of organisational change. She has held senior marketing roles in organisations such as Schroders and Hamptons International, gaining considerable insight into organisational life from her experience of working in complex organisations, where lines of communication and accountability are ambiguous and pressure for results is paramount.

She consults as strategic lead for the coaching portfolio of programmes within the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, as well as coaching senior leaders attending Lancaster University Management School Leadership Development programmes, senior leaders within the NHS and middle leaders attending a fast track management programme in the learning and skills sector. Jenny also enjoys working in the Arts sector and coaches fellows who receive bursaries from the Clore Leadership Foundation.
Jenny’s approach is informed by a number of psychological approaches, such as: person centred , solutions focussed and psychodynamic. It is also informed by her experience of working in complex commercial organisations, art, the latest leadership thinking and her intuition.
Jenny would describe her style as incisive, pragmatic, and supportive… her aim is to enable you to penetrate to the heart of the matter in order to move forward in a focused and expeditious way, that you will hopefully enjoy.
In 2012 Jenny wrote her first book ‘Rocking Your Role’ the ‘how to’ guide to success for female breadwinners, a group of women close to her heart

“My coach encouraged honesty and self-appraisal, without creating an atmosphere of ‘navel-gazing’ for its own sake.”
“I think it has given me the confidence to believe even more in myself (than I did already). The last session helped me to think clearly about my future, particularly at a time when I was beginning to think that I was at a “crossroads” in my career. The discussion re-assured me that I was going in the right direction, but it also re-assured me that I was currently in a very good position in my career and there was no urgency about moving on if I wished to remain where I was. It helped me focus clearly on my priorities in work and at home. In other words, it helped me to release unconscious mental pressure I was putting myself under” – Director, Riverside Housing Association
